Saskatchewan Roughriders Sign American Receiver Braydon Johnson

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed American wide receiver Braydon Johnson.

The 25-year-old signed with the Buffalo Bills after going unselected in the 2023 NFL Draft, following five standout seasons at Oklahoma State University. The six-foot, 200-pound target caught 79 passes for 1,298 yards and eight touchdowns, averaging 16.9 yards per catch. On special teams, he also returned 24 kicks for 431 yards.

As a senior, Johnson put up a career-high 32 catches for 566 yards and ranked fourth in the Big 12 with an average of 17.7 yards per catch, while also making seven catches of at least 40 yards. The native of Arlington, Texas’s super senior year earned him an invitation to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.  

The wideout posted an unofficial blazing forty-yard dash time of 4.38 seconds at Oklahoma State’s pro day last year.

Johnson joins Geronimo Allison, Dazz Newsome, O’Joshua Bunton, Dohnte Meyers, and KeeSean Johnson as rookie American receivers trying to make the team out of camp.

    The Roughriders are trying to build a team on the cheap! The Blue Bombers have 3 of the top five highest paid receivers in the CFL and the highest paid player – QB. The Roughriders don’t have a receiver in the top 10 and they keep showing us raw recruits.
